The Gainesville Spring Chicken Festival is back with a NEW LOCATION on April 27, 2019! Come to Longwood Park on Lake Lanier for a chicken-packed afternoon including Georgia's Official Chicken Cook-off, live music, entertainment, and chicken-inspired art market.
The free festival lasts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A $6 Cluck Card gets you 10 ample samples from the cook teams, which will serve until 3 p.m. While the judges finalize their decisions, everyone enjoys the festival until the cook-off winner is announced at 4 p.m.
Cluck Cards will go on sale April 1 and will be available online at www.gainesville.org, at the Gainesville Convention & Visitors Bureau at 117 Jesse Jewell Parkway, and at the festival.
This festival is hosted annually by the City of Gainesville. Event proceeds benefit the “Gainesville Spring Chicken Scholarship” for students pursuing a career in the poultry industry, and the “You’re the Reason Scholarship” for City of Gainesville employees’ college-bound children.
